Photos for the weekend: exhibition ‘Photographs of The Gambia by Gambians’, West Africa

Above – a small selection of some of sixty creative images from our young Gambian photography students, on exhibit at Alliance Française (until tomorrow, that is!), here in The Gambia, West Africa.

However, after a very successful exhibition opening night  – with national tv coverage/media in attendance – and the subsequent two week run, tomorrow (Saturday 31st May), sadly, it’s time to take down the ‘Photos Tell Storiesphotographs of The Gambia by Gambians‘ .  However, we’ll pack our Gambian photography students prints with great care so that, perhaps, in the not too distance future, we can exhibit them again.

We’ll post more of the students work soon but, in the meantime, please check out  the ‘Students Work‘ and ‘Behind-the-Scenes‘ pages, to what they got up during the photography workshops with myself and, photographer/tutor, Jason Florio.

And, if you are interested in hosting a Photos Tell Stories photography workshop, click here for more details.
